This Forum is an annual meeting that brings together African leaders and stakeholders to engage and explore African-led security solutions and it is at the forefront of initiating dialogue with the continent’s policymakers and influencers. This years’ theme will be natural resource governance in Africa.
The Forum complements formal meetings of African heads of state and government by assembling them in an informal, collaborative environment. In the spirit of gatherings taking place under the Baobab tree, the Forum offers room and space for panel discussions, interaction with the floor and bilateral talks to share views and experiences in a time efficient, results-oriented and open manner. The Tana Forum promotes African-led solutions by holding discussions on the strategic and pro-active management of African peace and security issues driven by the interest to contribute to stronger ownership of these issues.
